Mangaluru: Five people have been arrested on the charges of vandalizing a bakery and assaulting its owner for posting a comment in favor of Israel on Facebook, police sources reported. The man, who runs a bakery at Karnad had recently posted a comment supporting Israel's action against Palestine.
Angry over the post, a few local young people barged into the bakery and destroyed the items, besides beating up the owner and posing death threats to him, the police sources said. He was also forced to tender an apology which the attackers recorded on video, they said.
The bakery owner also allegedly received threatening calls from other countries over the Facebook post, they said.
